The Pittsburgh Steelers begin the season as the best team in the AFC North, but each team in the division has something to play for. The Steelers have the most talent, and they have the best-looking roster where the playoffs are concerned. This division has put three teams in the playoffs before, but this year will see the division put only the Steelers in the playoffs as they run away from their division mates.

Bell, Big Ben, and Brown

LeVeon Bell, Big Ben, Antonio Brown, and Martavis Bryant as an honorable mention are the most important parts of this team.

The team will score more than enough points to go to the playoffs, and they will improve on last season because Bryant has been reinstated by the league. Big Ben is getting older, but he is very good on the run as his weapons get open for him. They have improved their defense, but they have done so much work on the offense that they should be almost as good as a team like the Falcons.

The Ravens are hampered

The Ravens are concerned about Joe Flacco's health, and they are even more concerned that he could get hurt again. The Steelers seem to have the Ravens' number, and they will continue that style of play this year. They may split with the Bengals, and they will beat the Browns twice. The Steelers can easily win this division, but they have a much larger hurdle to jump when they get to the playoffs.

The Raiders

The Steelers are likely to have to go through the Raiders to get to the AFC title game. The second and third seed in the conference will play in that divisional round, and the Steelers have to hope that they can score as much as The Raiders will score. Both teams have the receiving coops and running backs that will make them dangerous, but the Raiders are a bit younger.

The Raiders have improved their defense just as the Steelers have, but the Raiders have Khalil Mack. That one guy could turn this matchup on its head if the Steelers are unable to score.

The Steelers will get stung

They will likely get stopped by the Raiders just shy of a berth in the Super Bowl, but they will have a successful season that offers quite a lot of promise.

A team like this can do a lot of damage in the NFL, and they can make the league stand on its head because they can force it to think about how it will defend such a rugged team. They must work as hard as they can to outpace my prediction because they could lose LeVeon Bell soon, Big Ben could retire, and they would be left struggling.
